The Southeastern Film Critics Awards

My hometown critic Lawerence Toppman belongs to this group, so it is of interest to me. Another boost for Up in the Air which seems to be in a showdown with The Hurt Locker. Also, Streep, Mo'Nique, and Waltz seem to be dominating so far...Oscars? Another thought I had was that both Up and Fantastic Mr. Fox are making a lot of top ten lists, is there a possibility that we have not one, but two animated films nominated this year? You wouldn't here me complaining that's for sure!
